Curriculum

Djanogly City Academy has developed a flexible, innovative and student focused curriculum to ensure every child can be successful.

Our curriculum is deliberately designed to equip scholars with the knowledge and skills to be successful in their examinations and to prepare them for future study.  Lessons are designed to be fun and engaging, but with learning and achievement as the core focus.

We deliver personal, social and health education as well as exploring aspects of religion and culture within our Values sessions that scholars start and end each day with.

The academy offers a range of opportunities for scholars to take part in extra-curricular activities.  There are a number of sports clubs and scholars have the opportunity to represent the academy in competitions and events including football, netball, athletics, cross country running, cricket and table tennis.  The school takes great pride in the creative talent that our scholars demonstrate and showcases this in performances and talent shows.

Curriculum Approach

Our school day starts at 8.30am and finishes at 4.30pm, Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 12pm on a Friday.  Scholars have a 30 minute lunch break.

In Years 7 to 11, scholars are taught in subjects by specialist teachers.  In addition to this, scholars also receive a forum and values session for the first 30 minutes of the day, Monday to Thursday, with values to the end week on Fridays.
